ESMF identifies a range of required environmental and social management measures that need to be taken during the planning, design, and implementation of activities within the Emergency COVID-19 Response Project, in order to ensure compliance with the national legislation and the World Bank’s ESF.
The following ESMF also includes Labor Management Procedures (LMP), a document defining the rights and responsibilities of project employees and employers and setting out the requirements to ensure safe working conditions for health safety.
